Matthew Toffolo: What motivated you to make this film?
Kevin Ulibarri: Our film was born from a desire to create with friends while we were all in LA at the same time.

We had about 2 weeks to shoot it before our group would disperse, so that approaching deadline also motivated us to dive right in. Our concept came from a unanimous feeling of fear and helplessness shortly after the inauguration of the 45th president. Collaborating on a piece that addressed those overwhelming feelings was a source of empowerment and creative release for all of us involved.
